WE HAVEN’T really gotten over the impact of the 2008 food crisis, and yet another one is unfolding. Global food prices have hit record levels, largely driven by soaring prices of cereals, meat and dairy products. (See sidebar.)

Crude prices have also surged amid the conflict in North Africa and protests in the Middle East.

Rising fuel costs mean higher prices of essential commodities, transport and, of course, food.

The emerging food crisis is not immediately attributable to rice but more to wheat and sugar. Buffer rice stocks from 2009 to 2010 rose significantly in many countries, including Brunei, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Laos and Vietnam, showing that rice security was of utmost concern to the region.

History of SRI in Cambodia

The director of the Center for Studies and Development of Cambodian Agriculture (CEDAC), Dr.Y.S. Koma, first tried SRI methods in 1999 after reading about them in the ILEIA newsletter. Given the increases in yield attained, with reductions in seed and water requirements, and thus greater profitability for farmers, the government officially began promoting SRI in 2005. Now all Provincial Departments of Agriculture (PDAs) are implementing SRI extension in their rice programs. There are also at least 47 NGOs and development projects involved in promoting SRI in different parts of Cambodia. Since 2004, there is a national SRI secretariat hosted by MAFFs Department of Agronomy and Agriculture Land Improvement with technical support from CEDAC and funding support from GTZ (German Technical Cooperation Agency), Oxfam America and GB, FAO and HEKS (A Swiss NGO). For more information see Dr. Koma's Agriculture and Rural Development Discussion Note on proposed strategies to utilize the potential of rice production in Cambodia (June, 2008).
